UPDATED: Thursday night, Rye Lions announced this fundraiser has been cancelled. No reason was provided. On social media the group said: “Please be aware that we must cancel our Community Shredding Day Fundraiser!! Please do not use the SignUpGenius from past posts or links. We will return with future fundraiser details and we thank you for your support!!”
You have been cleaning. Cleaning out. Purging.
Old bills, bank statements, legal documents.
Now you can dispose of these deep dark secrets with all your personal info safely because the Rye City Lions Club’s 2020 annual fundraiser will be held this year as a community shredding day.
Net proceeds will be split between Rye Fund for Education’s Safe Academics for Everyone (S.A.F.E.) campaign (created to raise money for the District’s extraordinary expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic) and the Rye YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program.
Date: Sunday, October 4
Location: Osborn Elementary School Parking Lot
